Workshop focuses on new Citrus Heights City Hall
Citrus Heights residents are invited to attend a workshop from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday to discuss the features and amenities they would like to see in a new city hall. The city proposes to demolish the existing City Hall complex, except for the Police Department building, at Fountain Square Drive and Greenback Lane to make way for a three-story medical office building. The workshop will be held at the Citrus Heights Community Center, 6300 Fountain Square Drive.
Behind the News: The plan calls for constructing a new city hall at another site, possibly on a 4-acre, city-owned parcel on Antelope Road between Mariposa Avenue and Auburn Boulevard.
Rocklin unveils memorial for officers killed on duty
Rocklin residents are invited to the unveiling of a Rocklin Police Memorial honoring City Marshal Samuel Renaldi, who was killed in the line of duty 100 years ago, and Officer Matthew Redding, who was fatally struck by a drunken driver while directing traffic on Highway 65 in 2005. The memorial ceremony takes place at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Rocklin Police Department, 4080 Rocklin Road.
Behind the News: Renaldi died Feb. 19, 1914, after a shootout with saloon owner Uledi Holmes, who tracked the marshal and his deputies down at a livery stable after they tried to enforce the town’s midnight curfew at noisy bars, according to a Rocklin police news release. Holmes also died in the encounter. The driver of the hit-and-run vehicle that killed Redding, Eric Kenneth Dungan, was sentenced in April 2007 to 15 years to life in state prison after his conviction on a second-degree murder count.
